Make a holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn, France your home away from home

Tarn, a mountainous department of south west France, is situated in the Midi-Pyrenees province. Tarn is a glorious region of rural France, where the pace of life is leisurely, the culture is strong and the scenery is green and peaceful, broken only by fortified medieval towns and impressive fairytale Tarn chateaux. Holiday rental chateaus in Tarn are perfect for family holiday, extended family reunions and special occasions due to their size, space and grandeur, all at hugely good value.

Things to do on holiday in Tarn, France

As I mentioned, Tarn has a rich, traditional culture. The museums of Albi give a great insight into the history of the department, including the famous Musee Toulouse-Lautrec, dedicated to the local artist. The engineering miracle of the Millau Bridge which straddles the Tarn Gorge makes essential viewing from a Tarn gite, especially if you have hired a car to drive hundreds of metres above the ground.

The river which carved the huge Aveyron Gorge is a mecca for white water rafting and canoeing, with some of the best and most challenging stretches starting in the St Antonin area, which is a great place to take a Tarn gite or chateau if you intend to take to the river. Horse riding in Tarn is hugely popular too, with the open expanses of green open spaces lending themselves to both single day rides and long riding holidays. The mountain biking and walking in Tarn is also top class, with many marked trails across some of the most beautiful scenery to be found in the area.

There are some great golf courses in Tarn too. The course of Chateau Lasbordes in Albi is a particularly good course, but there are many excellent rounds to be had all across the department, so you will undoubtedly be able to find a good course in close proximity to your holiday rental gite or chateau in Tarn.

Places to holiday in Tarn, France

Cordes-sur-Ciel is probably the most magnificent fortified bastide towns, set proudly on a hilltop in the Tarn countryside. The huge, domineering chateau which dominates the skyline offers sweeping panoramic views across the department, and is a perfect place to start getting a feel for the department’s rich heritage and culture when you first arrive at your holiday rental in Tarn.

Wine connoisseurs who have taken a self catering property in Tarn must visit Gaillac, the village at the centre of the Tarn’s wine trade, and the local markets in most villages sell delicious local produce, especially the large bustling market at St Antonin.

Weather in Tarn, France

The walking, riding and cycling season in Tarn starts as early as April, as average temperatures are already around 20°C, rising to a daily average of around 30°C in August.

Flights to Tarn, France

Just forty five minutes from Toulouse International Airport (TLS), and five hours from Paris on the TGV, a self catering Tarn chateau or gite has become very accessible from the UK. easyJet, British Airways, BMI and Flybe all offer flights from the UK, so cheap flights to Tarn should not be hard.

                                                            We can't say enough good things about this lovely place, but to name just a few: modern fixtures/fittings/bathrooms, bigger than it looks in the pictures, sun-trap private courtyard, very comfortable beds, good quality towels and linen, absolutely silent at night (a Londoner's dream!) and a beautiful view and sunset from the field opposite. We also felt that the gîte was very well and thoughtfully stocked - a mostly new and very comprehensive set of kitchen equipment, many detailed recommendations for local restaurants and sights in the welcome pack, good quality selection of books/games/DVDs, and some really lovely soaps left for us to use! We would highly recommend both this gîte and the local area, and can't wait to go back.

                                                            A wonderful house in a great location

                                                            Le Muret is clearly a much loved home and the owners have carved out a paradise from the local sylvan environment. The views are breathtaking and there is much pleasure to be gained from watching the passage of French rural life over the rolling valleys. The house is very well kept and full of charming idiosyncrasies. As a group of six, including two toddlers and two grandparents, we found that the property was perfect for our needs. The generously sized house provided peace to those who needed it and gave the kids plenty of space to play. The children also loved the large garden, which contains lots of different little areas to explore. We stayed in early April and were happy to find a house suited to the changeable weather, which was sometimes chilly, sometimes glorious, consistently better than it would have been at home. It was quite surprising how much of the landscape we had to ourselves at this time of year and it proved a wonderful time to discover the lush greenery and ancient fabric of the region without having to share our time with thousands of others. We would be back in a heartbeat.

                                                            Wij hadden een prachtig verblijf in La Calvetië ! Een supermooi, heel verzorgd en rustig huis en zwembad . Superservice en een prachtige omgeving met heel veel rust ! Enkel de haan kraait je 's morgens wakker :) Wij zouden er zeker direct opnieuw naar toe gaan. Aan de eigenaars : superbedankt !
